In 2008 I moved to Aotearoa from Argentina.

 

My jewellery became the result of different influences. My surroundings as well as travel and life experiences (or things that catch my attention) often inspire me and will develop in a piece of jewellery.

 

In NZ I also trained in stone setting.

 

I live and work from Piha in my petit home/studio. My style is contemporary, based on simplicity and organic shapes. My jewellery is very feminine and easy to wear.

My work is made in silver and gold of the best quality. I use natural gemstones and sometimes inclusions of recycled materials such as copper and brass.

 

I love the design process as much as the making of each piece, every step involved in the development of an idea to the actual finished object is what makes this journey a very joyful one!
